After 36 hours and double-digit listens, I might have to go out on a limb and declare this the best album in several years.

Wow, I sound like one of those hyperbole people.

Pitchfork would disagree.

^ The Albino Virgin Brigade and I often disagree.

Well all I've got to do is make sure I don't end up in their mom's basement. I'm sure that if I can stay out of there, we will never meet.

I don't know anyone that actually takes Pitchfork seriously, and, I know a lot of people that love music.

Their worship of anything Radiohead-related is amusing to me.

However, I wouldn't be surprised if they pull a Sky Blue Sky and dock the album for being too immediate.

Not even a good Wilco song, imo. And you know I love Wilco almost as much as Radiohead. I don't get people's love of this song but I don't care what people like as long as they get that Wilco are a great band. However, Impossible Germany seems quite mediocre next to just about any Radiohead song.

It's hardly worth arguing over but I just had to express my amazement at such a statement.

Yet more positive press:

So, big sighs of relief all round. In Rainbows is the sound of a band who effortlessly straddle the avant garde/popular divide, and also sound like they actually enjoy being themselves again. They’re back at the top of their game. Now go back and pay some more, all you 50 pence donators. This is a band that needs all the support we can give them.
They screwed up the lyrics to All I Need though, they said the line was "I'm an atom bomb trapped in your hot car".

Impossible Germany is great (prob my favorite on the album), but nothing I couldn't hear several variations of by the Grateful Dead, My Morning Jacket, etc. If you think those guitars are special, Stephen Malkmus can play that stuff in his sleep, and doesn't need to have someone accompany him.

I don't think you'll be hearing anything like the majority of the stuff on In Rainbows anytime soon.

Wow, I had no idea they can sound this warm, and pretty. Good to see the guitars come back.

i'm actually surprised there aren't more guitars, to be honest.

if i never heard how great videotape sounded last year, then i'd be really happy with it now.

however... auch.

they really nailed all the songs. all of them... except this. i don't know what to say.

by the way... it seems as if there's as much commotion on this board as a u2 release.
